Thank you for your patch!

The goals for the next release are:
- to fix bugs
- to deal with potential copyright issues, and
- to fix long-standing problems with how people generate random numbers for use
   with PyCrypto.

The resulting set of changes is already fairly large, and I don't want to 
make it larger by adding new ciphers, so Camellia will probably not be 
included in the next release. I will consider it for future releases, 

Looking at your patch, I noticed that you have included copyright licensing 
statements in camellia.c and camellia.h, but the author's name and 
copyright licensing for the PyCrypto-specific parts of the patch are 
missing. The ideal situation would be for the PyCrypto-specific 
contributions to be placed into the public domain (i.e. all copyright 
interests be disclaimed). Alternatively, the same license that the Camellia 
reference implementation uses (i.e. 2-clause BSD) would be fine.
